Seabourn Odyssey Cruise Review by fairdinkumozzie
- Sail Date: July 2014
- Destination: Mediterranean
We were very disappointed that the staff didn't insist on every passenger using the hand sanitizers positioned at the entries to all restaurants, particularly since several passengers and staff had very noticeable coughs, which increased over the 7 days.
The air conditioning system in our suite smelled stale, and the only solution seemed to be spraying air freshener around the room (which worked for 5 minutes).
The temperature difference between the ship and the shore was huge -- which probably made us all more susceptible to infection.
Seabourn does have an exceptionally talented crew and entertainment team, who were very friendly, and made up for the lack of interaction between guests themselves. There were many large family groups who stuck with themselves. The high price of shore excursions meant that many people simply toured the port towns for a couple of hours on their own, then came back to the ship for food and rest by the pool.
We were surprised by the wide age range of passengers -- with many children roaming around the ship with parents and grandparents.
The biggest disappointment for us was the need to cut our cruise short due to the bad cold that we caught on board.
